3.0 out of 5 stars Not great in the wind., 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with other reviews, these are great in that they stay in your ear and don't budge. I'm not a long distance runner, but do four runs a week and no bother at all.
Some have complained about taking them out and losing the little bits that fit into your ear - I would say twist them out the other way (i.e. the opposite twist to when you "twist and lock" them in) and it works fine.
But, I went out for my first run last night in a stiff breeze, and it felt like I was in a wind tunnel! Not great in the wind, and a lot of whooshing noise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glorified pedometer?, 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's ok. I use it as it syncs with MyFitnessPal and MapMyRun so gives a good overview of fitness and calories, but if I wasn't using these two programmes, it's really just a glorified pedometer.
You can't use the food tracker as this is a US version (hence using MFP instead) and it does this odd thing where it massively overestimates your calories need. i.e. I have set MFP and Fitbit to 1400 cals per day to lose weight. However, Fitbit takes account of your activity and whats to add additional calories to make up for this! Some days, Fitbit will tell me I can eat 2,400 cals! If you're not sure how calories work in terms of weight loss, you could end up over eating!
I also don't use the sleep monitor anymore as I forget to send it to sleep and wake it up. I also don't monitor my fluid intake (a function on Fitbit). However, I do use it to keep track of my activity, and get upset when I haven't reached my 10,000 step goal.
But aside from all that, it works for me because of MFP and MMR. If you're not already using these apps, or won't use them, it's probably not worth the money, and just buy a plain pedometer instead. Have a look on the website and see what programmes/apps Fitbit will sync with before buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably buy them again., 19 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't pull your hair and holds it tight enough, but you couldn't go for a run wearing these as I think your pony tail would start to drop. Still leaves a dent where you've had a pony tail, but not as pronounced as with covered hair bands. Don't think this could even be avoided. Do tend to stretch as you wear them. Definitely suit a more relaxed style hair style. Would probably buy them again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jut be careful in bright sunlight!, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using OPI gelcolour for a while now (at home, for personal use) as it was so much cheaper to buy everything and do my own nails.
However, this bottle was a replacement for another bottle when the brush went hard when I using it once - it had almost set solid. This did exactly the same thing almost immediately, and was leaving a clumpy top coat on my nails. I was annoyed (mainly because gelcolour is more expensive than "normal" OPI, but also because the top coat is the last stage, and so the nails were ruined!
However, if you google this problem, you see it happens to others, and it appears that the top coat cures more quickly than the base and coloured coats in UV light. And this includes bright sunlight. I was doing my nails on a sunny day in our bright bay window so the top coat was curing as it went on!
As soon as I moved away from the light, I cleaned up the brush with acetone and got all the "set" varnish off, and started again, and brilliant results!
This works as well as it always does, but maybe do your nails away from a window, and not in the sunshine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Working so far., 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to use at work as a spare to charge iPhone5 from laptop. Did have an old, cheaper one, but although this worked at first, after a while, it stopped charging completely.
Bought this one as it's a MFI (Made for iPhone, apparently) and paid a bit more for better quality. It took a bit longer to arrive (a previous review said theirs came from the States, but I think the customs note on mine was from China although I could be mistaken), but seems to be working well so far.
Seems a bit daft to give a charger 5 stars and say "I love it" but so far, it's doing exactly what it's meant to.
